Since the day of human existence, millions of people have traveled from their places to different regions for many reasons. A number of negative factors such as war, natural disasters and epidemics damaged this ongoing dynamic structure of tourism with varying extensions. The new type of coronavirus (Covid-19) epidemic that emerged in December 2019 has also affected tourism activities and individuals' intentions and motivations to go on holiday. The main purpose of this research is to measure the effect of Covid-19 phobia on individuals' holiday intentions. The sample of the study was 388 people. In the research, a questionnaire form was chosen as the data collection tool. The questionnaire form generally consists of two parts. In the first part of the questionnaire form, statements that help to determine the demographic characteristics of the individuals participating in the study, and in the second part, to measure the levels of individuals' Covid-19 phobia and their intention to go on holiday are included.
